Chippenham, UK; 08 February 2023. Composites design and manufacturing experts Carbon ThreeSixty (CTS), has gained Cyber Essentials certification — a government-backed scheme developed by the National Cyber Security Centre and delivered by IASME Governance. The certification scheme supports organisations of all sizes to protect against online threats and demonstrate a commitment to cyber security. It acts as a valuable trust marker of Carbon ThreeSIxty’s own cyber secure status.
Cyber Essentials is a government-backed certification scheme, launched in 2014, which helps organisations of all sizes guard against online threats and demonstrate a commitment to cyber security to customers and stakeholders with the idea that protecting against such threats reduces the chances of being identified as a target for more malicious, in-depth attacks by cyber criminals.
Carbon ThreeSixty Ltd has undergone a rigorous assessment of its policies, procedures and IT infrastructure to ensure compliance with the Cyber Essentials standard. As the nature of threats develops and working practices evolve, certification requirements are reviewed and changed frequently with organisations required to undergo annual renewals.
“As a business operating in manufacturing, Carbon ThreeSixty supplies industrial sectors including aerospace, defence, automotive, and energy,” explained Will Barrick CTO, “Our customer base requires strict confidentiality and having evidence ensuring the security of their data is paramount”
Cyber security is becoming an increasing issue in the UK, with recent data from the UK government revealing that, in 2022, 39 per cent of UK businesses identified a cyber-attack. The actual number of cyber-attacks that occur is likely to be much higher than this, as businesses that are less cyber mature may not identify the attacks that take place.
